Snacks are mini-meals and should consist of nutrients your body needs to stay lean and trim. Instead of grabbing a candy bar filled with sugar and empty calories, select a snack that is filled with good-for-you nutrients like calcium, fiber, protein, and antioxidants.
A good time to snack is when you’re hungry. Usually that means if you go about five hours in-between regular meals or you just find yourself hungry a few hours after your last meal. Snacks should be about 150 to 200 calories and should supplement your regular meals to ensure you are able to take in your daily recommended dose of all your macro and micronutrients you need for the day.
